I think McNamara is driving his team on to a strong finish to the season, so that he has a good technical and self-confidence foundation on which to build early in 2019.  So, unlike CoC, I don't think les Dracs are quite 'sur la plage' yet!

The key issue will be how many inexperienced, younger players he puts out.  If it's too many, then Trinity will romp home.  But if it's no more than two or three, then the outcome will be very close - maybe even a draw!  Goudemand, for instance, is clearly thriving on being surrounded by experienced colleagues.

Don’t want to stereotype but the French played like cowards.

Up the Trin 

One of them appeared to have another go at Huby after the hooter had blown, luckily other players intervened & pulled him away. After being continually told how good Catalan were for the game recently, I thought we’d seen the end of this nonsense!

Terrible second half tactics by Catalans once the game was seemingly over at 34-12. Another decent win for Trinity though and we can't finish lower than 6th this season.

TJ is an utter delight to watch, some of his tries are totally ridiculous.

His defence was solid last night and for a ridiculous forward pass decision he would have had 4.

remember when we used to sneer at union for non-existent defence?

Remember when we used to say League is more flowing and exciting than Union?

Wakey really were coasting at  34-12 with Hampshire having missed 4 conversions to give a flattering scoreline to the French.  Unfortunately with the game well lost Catalans took full advantage of a weak and naive ref to just kill the game as a spectacle.

Tom Johnstone .  His 2nd try had everything.  Only Makinson comes anywhere near matching that sort of finishing.
